Bachelor in Paradise season 9 premieres tonight (Sept. 28) at 9 p.m. ET on ABC (via Sling or Fubo)

Rejected contestants from the other Bachelor series filter into Sayulita, Mexico at Playa Escondida for several weeks' worth of both men and women exchanging roses with the singles they'd like to spend more time with. New contestants are continually added into the mix, with additional contestants being sent back home until eventually someone is forced to find someone new or stay in their current relationship. 

In season 9, Jesse Palmer returns to shepherd all the hopefuls into what they hope will be lasting relationships. With an uneven mixture of men and women to pair up on dates, it's a bit of a more level playing field than what we typically see with The Bachelor.
